With 2016 quickly wrapping up, it’s time for dealerships to make sure they are properly stocked with vehicle inspection stickers for the upcoming year. • Supplies of 2017 stickers must last until December 31, 2016. (Any unused 2017 stickers can be returned for a credit toward future orders.) • Be sure you have a supply of 2018 stickers, to start issuing on January 01, 2017. If either of these are running low, now is the time to get an order in. (For 2018 stickers, order a three-month supply at minimum.) Maintaining this supply eliminates the risk of having to send vehicles offsite for inspection, which can add time and hassle to transactions. The earlier orders are placed, the better. Turnaround times are typically a week to ten days, but with the excess mail that comes during the holidays, they’re inevitably a bit longer. Plus, DMV offices are also seldom fully staffed during these times.
With 2016 speeding to a close, we wanted to remind you of the holidays during which DMV-DIRECT and the NYS DMV will be closed. Please plan accordingly, to make sure you have enough supplies of plates, MV-50’s, and inspection stickers.
